Occurrence: catalogNumber: UCR_ENT 00007996; occurrenceRemarks: Designated as holotype for his new species Zeluscestartus [Mansucript name] by E. R. Hart (1972). Zeluspanamensis and Zeluscestartus were considered to be synonymic by G. Zhang. This specimen hence loses its holotype status (which is not official since the name was never published). The red holotype label affixed to the specimen by Hart, however, remains on the specimen for the purpose of recording this (informal) taxonomic history.; recordedBy: Richter; sex: Adult Male; Taxon: scientificName: Zeluspanamensis; family: Reduviidae; genus: Zelus; scientificNameAuthorship: Zhang and Hart, 2016; Location: country: COLOMBIA; stateProvince: Meta; locality: Cano Grande ; decimalLatitude: 3.11171; decimalLongitude: -73.83689; georeferenceSources: Gazetteer; Identification: identifiedBy: G.

Head orangish or reddish; remainder of body surface nearly uniformly dark brown; legs not banded or with inconspicuous bands. VESTITURE: Sparsely setose. Entire surface of head with short, recumbent setae; sparse, short, erect, spine-like setae on dorsal surface, denser on anteocular lobe; few long, erect, fine setae on ventral surface. Pronotum with sparse, short, erect, spine-like setae on dorsum, very sparse on anterior lobe, setal tracts indistinct; lateral surface of pronotum and pleura with moderately long, semi-erect or recumbent setae; scutellum with moderately long, erect, spine-like setae. Legs with very sparse setation; sundew setae on profemur very sparse. Corium and clavus with mix of short, recumbent or erect setae and long, erect, fine setae. Abdomen with moderately dense, short recumbent setae, intermixed with sparse, long, erect setae. STRUCTURE: Head: Cylindrical, L/W = 2.35. Postocular lobe long; in dorsal view distinctly narrowing through anterior 2/3, posterior 1/3 constant, tube-like. Eye prominent; lateral margin much wider than postocular lobe; dorsal margin attaining postocular transverse groove, ventral margin removed from ventral surface of head in lateral view. Labium: I: II: III = 1: 1.9: 0.4. Basiflagellomere diameter larger than that of pedicel. Thorax: Anterolateral angle bearing small, somewhat acute projection; medial longitudinal sulcus evident throughout, deepening posteriorly. Posterior pronotal lobe with rugulose surface; disc distinctly elevated above humeral angle; humeral angle armed, with dentate projection. Scutellum moderately long; apex angulate, slightly projected upward. Legs: Slender. Hemelytron: Slightly surpassing apex of abdomen, not more than length of abdominal segment seven; quadrate cell small; Cu and M of cubital cell subparallel. GENITALIA: (Fig. 151) Pygophore: Elongate ovoid; lightly sclerotized expansion below paramere; not expanded laterally in dorsal view. Medial process cylindrical; slender; moderately long, about as long as paramere; laterally slightly compressed towards apex; minute spicules on posterior surface; semi-erect; very slightly curved at middle; apex in posterior view acute, with small hooklike projection. Paramere: Cylindrical; moderately long, not reaching medial process; directed posteriad; basally slightly narrower; slightly curved ventrad; apical part very slightly enlarged. Phallus: Dorsal phallothecal sclerite shield-shaped; sclerotization reduced (yet not absent) on dorsal surface close to posterior margin of foramen; expansion of lateral margin at about mid-portion pronounced, covering ventral surface of endosoma; apical portion of phallothecal sclerite gradually tapering, distinctly keeled medially, laterally indistinctly angulate; apex acute; posterior margin of foramen broadly concave. Struts attached to dorsal phallothecal sclerite; apically separate, connected by bridge; basally separate throughout. Basal plate arm moderately robust; basally fused; in lateral view slightly curved; bridge extremely short; extension of basal plate expanded laterally onto arm, covering more than 1/2 of arm.

Female: (Fig. 150c, d) Similar to male, except for the following. Larger than male, total length 13.40-15.28 mm (mean 14.43 mm, Suppl. material 2). Dorsal coloration similar to that in male; lateral surface of pronotum, pleura in some specimens dark brown; abdomen always orangish or reddish. Basiflagellomere subequal in diameter to pedicel. Process on humeral angle spinous, long.

Diagnosis

Recognized by the orangish or reddish head and the dark brown remainder of the body. The short, nearly straight medial process and the short paramere separate males of this species from all other species of the same species group. The yellowish or reddish ventral surface and the usually yellowish or reddish (blackish-brown in some specimens) lateral surface distinguishes females of this species from others in the same group.

Etymology
